Goodbye, Artisans.

Yes, the Artisan Showcase is over. Lots of work for a one day event, but I’ve been wanting to do this for years, so it was a pleasure to do the work.

Started out with some big, bare spaces and started filling them up a bit at a time.AS 1 AS 2 AS 3

The paintings arrived first, along with the felted items…

AS 4 AS 5 AS 6 AS 8

and I started filling in with some of my stuff.

AS 7 AS 9

Enter the glass and more mixed media…

AS 11 AS 12 AS 13

and we were ready!

I did not take one picture during the course of the day, but I talked to everyone who came in and enjoyed myself immensely.

Surprised by some of the people who did not show up as well as those who did. Like my daughter-in-law who came to help wherever she could, all day long! Very few people who came, left without making a purchase which surprised me even more. Many Christmas gifts were purchased and everyone seemed to like the opportunity to shop quality goods.

We ended the day feeling like a group of very talented women…compliments will do that! There were lessons learned about promotion and some initial difficulty getting wifi devices connected to my system! And then we didn’t need them–it was very much a cash/check day…so much easier!

Personally, I loved it and am looking forward to another show next year. And I’m very tired…looking forward very much to a restful day tomorrow.

    • Donna, I always enjoy it when I can visit with you. Thanks for coming and I hope to see you again soon…before you go off to France!

    • Oh, I sure hope you can make it next time. My friends are very talented and I loved showing off their art–and mine, too, of course!

  1. Congratulations on a job well done! I’ve been invited to participate in a holiday handmade bazaar, but unfortunately I don’t have anywhere near enough stock this year. Ho hum.


    • Well I sure had/have plenty of stock because I haven’t done anything like this in YEARS! It was nice to have a showplace and even nicer to sell a few things!

    • Oh, I haven’t had a gold star since kindergarten! It feels good to get one. Thank you! And I was very surprised at the sales, but also very, very pleased. Very appreciative customers!
